The third story has Z-Girl and her team of Tigers battling Count Orlok�yes, the vampire�during World War I. All 9 covers have photo head shots of all 5 stars with Roy's and Gene's always slightly larger than the others. An active interest in climbing is not necessary to enjoy these exciting books (neither my wife or I care anything for the sport and we were on tenterhooks waiting to see what would happen.) So, so very good. Check out The Diary of a Wimpy Kid: A Novel in Cartoons by Jeff Kinney, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie and The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.
